Wireless Internet Service

We are now offer wireless Internet access to library patrons and guests at the following library branches:

For more information, see Connecting to YVL wireless, a Guide for portable devices.

Library staff provides assistance to connect to our wireless network. Please consult your user's manual, or contact your hardware or software provider for any additional assistance. See Also Connecting to Yakima Valley Libraries Wireless. The Yakima Central Library is not responsible for any changes that you make to your computer's settings and cannot guarantee that your hardware will work with our wireless connection.

You are responsible for setting up your own equipment. If you are not familiar with computers or networking, we recommend bringing someone with you who can help you configure your laptop in attempting to connect to our free, wireless Internet service. Wireless Internet access uses radio frequency signals to move information between your laptop computer and the Internet. No cables are required. This allows you to bring in your own computer and get Internet access.

Guest access: Please check at the circulation desk for information about connecting to the wireless internet service.

The first thing to try is to renew the "DHCP lease." If this does not work, try "resetting the network settings." Details can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398 (opens in new window).
